Directly to the north of Croyde lies the beautiful Putsborough Sands. Putsborough is sheltered from the persistent south westerly winds, provides good clean waves when everywhere else is blown out.
At the north end of the bay from Putsborough nestled into the hillside is Woolacombe. Woolacombe produces waves for all abilities through all stages of the tide making it popular with all types of wave riding craft from surfers through to kyakers.
